Bedwetting happens to millions of kids and teenagers from every part of the world. Kids wet the bed every single night and it is so common that other kids in your class also do it. It might sometimes feel you are the only one in the whole planet who wet the bed. You are not alone! It is because your friends will never tell you.
The most important thing to remember is that no one wets the bed on purpose. It doesn’t mean that you are a slob which means that you have low standards of cleanliness. It is just that its something you can’t help doing. For some reason, kids who wet the bed are not able to feel that their bladders are full and don’t wake up to pee. A kid who wets the bed most times have a realistic dream that he or she is in the bathroom peeing, only to wake up later and discover he or she is all wet.
Many kids who wet the bed are very deep sleepers and they do it every single night. Others wet some nights and are dry on others. A lot of kids say that they seem to be drier when they sleep at a friends or a relative’s house. That’s because kids who are anxious about wetting the bed may not sleep much or only very lightly. The good news is that almost all kids who wet the bed eventually stop. So, if you wet every night, don’t be discouraged and don’t worry that you are not normal.
It’s likely that bedwetting will go away on its own. It does not require special prayers because research has proved it that 15 out of 100 kids who wet the bed will stop every year without any treatment at all, but it’s still a good idea for you and your parents to talk to your doctor about it.
